Warriors, Cavaliers open as favorites to win 2018 NBA Finals by Las Vegas oddsmakers

The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are still battling for the 2017 NBA championship, but oddsmakers have already set the two teams as favorites to take home the 2018 title as well. 

That shouldn't come as much of a surprise given the talent on both of these two rosters, and the strangleholds they have on their respective conferences. While there is still the draft and free agency to come, barring any shocking moves, betting on anyone besides the Warriors or Cavs would seem like a waste of money.

However, if you are so inclined to throw a few bucks down on your favorite squad, or are just interested in seeing how the odds look a year out from the 2018 Finals, here are the odds for all 30 teams. Via Bovada:
